Monster Buck Found Dead

© By Othmar Vohringer

Hunters in Petersburg, North Dakota, observed this buck all of last season and tried to hunt him, but to no avail. This was a very smart buck. No matter what the hunters tried to get close to him it was no avail. To the local hunters dismay some pheasant hunters found the monster buck dead at the end of the deer hunting season. Wildlife officials decided after an examination of the remains that the buck died of natural causes.

It’s a little known fact that most big bucks die not because of a hunter but because of old age or accidents. The reason bucks as this one get that big is because they learn at a young age how to stay away from hunters and predators.

This is a true monster buck, check out the mass in the main beams and the tines. Notice the huge drop tines. It’s a giant alright!

That is a true monster. We get big Red Deer in our part of the woods but all of us would love to try our hands at Whitetail. Do most big bucks really die from old age or is that a stat created by us as hunters?

As an avid hunter I know few hunters who have take Boone and Crockett size deer. Over the last 30 years I have only seen a handful that size.

I believe that most of them die not exactly from old age, but indirectly as they can no longer effectively run from or defend themselves from predators.

Big deer are simply hard to find
